Tolkien Reading Day

textgram_1482682966.png

March 25 each year is Tolkien Reading Day. The theme for the day, set by the Tolkien Society, is Poetry and Songs in Tolkien’s Fiction.

If your only familiarity with J.R.R. Tolkien’s work is through Peter Jackson’s wonderful movies, you may not be aware of how prevalent poetry and songs are in Tolkien’s works. As lovingly and well-done as the movies are, they cannot pick up all of the nuances in Tolkien’s works. I encourage you to take a moment today and do so.

Happy reading,

Debra
